Benefits of Certification

With HCM Certification, you demonstrate your commitment to operational excellence by incorporating quality management principles into program and staff operations. The certification process verifies your operational soundness, policies and procedures, staffing oversight, consumer safety and organizational improvements.

URAC’s well-respected stamp of approval tells consumers, partners, payers and regulators that you meet the highest industry standards in delivering quality services.

What to Expect

URAC collaborates with you to develop a flexible framework for continuous improvement in health care management operations. While our experts define the standards of excellence, they do not prescribe how organizations must meet those standards. URAC’s thorough approach stimulates innovation across the continuum of care through email, conference calls and educational webinars.

Our Health Care Management Certification process takes less than six months. We award HCM certification for a full three years. Review our Standards-at-a-Glance for more information.

Who May Apply?

Organizations operating in the health care industry or serving other health care companies who are not eligible for other URAC accreditation or certification programs may apply for Health Care Management Certification. Applicants that were previously denied accreditation are also deemed ineligible.
